FREE PO-33 KIT: TB-303 Acid sample kit | for Teenage Engineering PO-33 & PO-133

video upload by CNTR RNDM

"Hey, my name is Christian and I have a confession to make...I love ACID music! Over the past few years, I was involved in quite a few acid projects, such as 303 Addict, Stoney Broke Weirdos, Acid Traxx...blah, blah, who cares, right? Anyway, boomer-mode on: when I started out making acid techno, it was all about tracksuits, warehouse raves, you know all that good stuff. However, for me, acid-clubbing was never about taking pills or drinking till you pass out or whatever...I always wanted to know what gear the live acts were using, how they were performing and stuff. I always hated polished disco stuff...I was all about this raw, unpolished, acidy kind of stuff. And you know what? I still remember the first real acid gig I went to, the night I fell in love with acid music, so to say...I don't know which year it was or anything but - nevertheless - I have a super vivid memory of that particular night. So I and a couple of my mates went to this super tiny club in Duisburg called Chism (RIP Chism♥️)...we had heard good things about it but we had never been there...anyway, when we arrived, there was an old man giving out glowsticks and I was like "ok, that's weird but hey, who doesn't love glowsticks, right?"...anyway, we went in and the club was jam-packed, sweat was dripping from the ceiling, the crowd was super rowdy and aggressive (but in a positive way) and Robert Babicz aka Rob Acid was tearing the flipping walls was bloody, there was no stage or anything...he had all this gear like in the middle of the dancefloor on a folding table and there was nothing but chaos and mayhem around him...I don't know how he felt that very moment but he looked super cool and calm and played this awesome live set! Thanks for this memory Herr Babicz, Na Zdrowie! Kocham cię, mój przyjaciel!

Ok, I'm going off on a tangent here...sorry about that. You're probably here for the PO-33 kit so let me tell you a bit about it. For this PO-33 kit, I recorded both 303 loops and one-shots using Roland's TB-3 and D16's AMAZING Phoscyon plugin. The one-shots all come from the TB-3 and have been stored in the drum banks. The first two drum banks are arranged as follows:
Pads 1-4, C, all one-shots varying in intensity
Pads 5-8, D, all one-shots varying in intensity
Pads 9-12, G, all one-shots varying in intensity
Pads 12-16, A, all one-shots varying in intensity

The one-shots in the last drum bank have been arranged randomly.

All my samples and kits are copyright free - you can use them in your own productions, videos, whatever. The main thing is: have fun with this kit (or any of my other kits or packs)!!!"

Vector Synthesizer Noodling

video upload by Acid Techno Man

"Just sequencing the Vector Synthesizer from my squid, testing out the iPhone dongle direct into the Audio Interface. Sounds good enough to me, being I'm not getting paid. Interesting things occur when you have the sync stopped, record 8 notes into the ARP/Sequencer of the vector, play a sequence from the squid, then engage the ARP on the Vector.
Enjoy. No acid this time.."

Vector Synthesizer Performance

video upload by Acid Techno Man

"Just sequencing this from my squid, testing out the variations in gate and velocity. This thing is great. Awesome build quality, top notch customer service. Can't say enough good about Vector as a company and as a synth. This is a well thought out design."

Vector Synthesizer - 5 min in

"I'm pretty happy that this thing can get aggressive. Now keep in mind, I just unboxed this and shot this shit video on my iphone. Just wanted to see it was capable of the dark side, rather than all the sissy ambient shit I've been hearing out of this thing."

These are varied and good, so be sure to flip through each. There are 39 videos in the playlist. To keep the list legible below I did not include patch notes in the description of each video. To get to them simply click through the video while playing and you will be taken to the video on YouTube where you can check them out if interested. I wish I found this channel sooner so I could have been posting them as they went up. BTW, if you know of any YouTube channels including your own that have not been featured on the site, sent them in. You'll find details on what goes up and how to send stuff in the posting guidelines here.

Tobias Freund

" Tobias Freund has been making music for twenty five years. Besides earning his crust as a hired studio gun, Tobias has a long resume of techno records to his name. Often these have been collaborations, as Sieg Über Die Sonne with Dandy Jack, as Atom™ & Pink Elln with Uwe Schmidt, as nsi. with Max Loderbauer, or most recently as Odd Machine with Ricardo Villalobos. Tobias also records solo, under the name Pink Elln for techno — don’t say it out loud in German, it’s rude — and Tobias for house (remember ‘Street Knowledge’?). All in all, this is a man that has made a huge variety of music from techno to house to neo-acid to experimental/classical records."

Interview with Hexfix93 of VAC

The following is an interview I just wrapped up with hexfix93 of Velvet Acid Christ. As you know, this site is about the gear, namely synths, and the gear that helps drive and enhance synths, but ultimately the focus is on synths.

I was chatting a bit with hexfix93 and asked him if he would be interested in a slightly different take on an interview, one focused on synths and their impact to his world. We all have our story regarding how our obsession with synths first started, how we see and approach synths and what they mean to us. I thought it would be interesting to hear his story. The following is the interview.

Before it begins, I want to thank hexfix93 for taking the time out for this. We all have a different approach and a different story when it comes to our synths. This is his. For more of his music check out VAC and don't miss Toxic Coma. Cheers, matrix.

1. What was your first synthesizer, how old were you when you picked it up, and why did you pick it up?

"It was some kind of old yamaha cheap thing. i got it for my atari st, so when i played games like leisure suit larry that the music wouldn't come from the wimpy fm built in sound, but a general midi synth instead. it really didn't sound all that great. i wasn’t really a keyboard player at this point.

The first synth i got as a keyboard player was a roland w30 sampler workstation. And we made like 3 records with that keyboard. i remember gary slaughter an x vac member, spilled orange vodka drink on it. and i had to take it apart and clean every part of it by hand slowly, it took weeks. it was a pure nightmare.

This 2017 lineup reinforces Moogfest’s commitment to bold experimentation, with some of the most important musicians and thinkers of our day helping to blur the lines between audience and artist, conversation and collaboration, technology and creativity.
